This temple was recommended by a colleague as being more remote but very active. Outside of the complex there is one of the few pagoda if not the only one you can see in Shanghai. Inside there are many temples and people worshiping. The atmosphere is very relaxing and calm, worth the visit.

A Taoist temple full of buda statues, very impressive to see on weekend when people go to pray. Completely recommended. To me was totally worthy.

This Buddhist temple is excellent. It is located near Xujiahui. It is surely worth a visit for tourists who spend couple of days in Shanghai. Lot of local believers like to come to this temple. Longhua temple has beautiful courtyards and some of the statues are truly impressive. Worth a visit!

From its pagoda tower to its gate and several sacred halls, this temple complex is meticulously and historically maintained.

To get into the temple there is a small fee, but it is totally worth it. The temple is very peaceful. It is combined with active practicing Buddhists and tourists. There are many different little rooms with various types of statues and prayers going on in them. It is so impressive especially for someone like myself who didn't know a... More

A little bit out of the city BUT it definitly worth a visit if you have time! The temple is really amazingly beautiful and less crouded than the Buddha temple (which in my opinion you can skip).

It's a nice temple, but would be much nicer without the crowd, and the blaring music (they did turn it down an hour or so into our visit). I was looking for a temple to walk calmly, contemplate, observe, and this wasn't the place for that at all.

Found this temple to be most serene, one of the most serene Chinese temples I'd visited. There's a minimal entrance fee of approx rmb20 which goes into maintenance of the temple. The temple has many Buddha and deity statues and I like the ruling that burning of joss sticks are only allowed at the main courtyard. Beyond that no burning... More

Good place to visit if u have extra time and liking for religious places. Gigantic and magnificent Buddha statues. As cemetery is near by... making it good package for one day trip.
